    Good Evening Sir,
    I am encouraged to research my father's medals. I have his separation records from the United States Army. Without being a burden to anyone, I'd like to gain a better understanding of his service, as well as the medals he was awarded. Would you please point me in the right direction? I appreciate your assistance and thank you all. Sincerely, Suzy.

    Suzy, I moved your post to its own thread so it generates more traffic. If you can supply whatever information you have, I'm sure there are many here who will be willing to help out. Welcome to the forum, and good luck with your quest.

    Hi Suzy, would it be possible to post your fathers separation papers? Most of the time it's possible to learn what unit he was in and get some information on his decorations and awards.

    Welcome back, Suzy. If you have not seen it yet, there is a relevant thread on this Forum titled 81st Infantry, 322 Regiment... "Wildcats" that you may want to read through. There is some stuff on the 323rd in it as well. I did not check to see if all of the links still work, but one that does is for The Approach to the Philippines from the US Army in WWII series is worth looking at.
